Guest Bio: Catharine Arnston, CEO of energybits
Catharine Arnston has a thirty-year career as an international Attaché for the Canadian and British Governments, publisher of an international magazine and Founder of three startups.  But in 2009 when her younger sister was diagnosed with breast cancer and advised by her oncologist to change her diet to an alkaline one because it would help her heal, Catharine put her career on hold to help her sister. In the process, she discovered algae, the most alkaline, nutrient-dense plant in the world that no one seemed to know about. Catharine knew algae would be a game changer for the world if she could just help Americans understand it. And ENERGYbits was born.

EP 117 - Is Algae the New Superfood?
A staple in Asian diets, algae is a relatively underused food group in America. However, it is the most nutrient-dense food in the world, with three times the amount of protein as steak, 25 times more calcium than milk and thousands more antioxidants than blueberries.

Algae is also the most studied food in the world, with more than 100,000 studies on the food group.

Catharine Arnston, Shark Tank contestant and founder and CEO of ENERGYbits, discusses how she discovered algae while her sister was battling cancer and how it altered the course of her life. Leaving a 30-year career in the business world, Arnston became dedicated to finding ways for more Americans to enhance their diets by adding in algae. 

The result was ENERGYbits, algae tablets that build your immune system, helping you to heal better and faster.

Listen as Arnston joins Dr. Taz to discuss the power of algae in boosting your immune system and fighting illness.
